Also, new nails and new flowers. From me to me. 😁

One more book and #booked2019 will be done. I realized I used one book twice. All is Quiet on the Western Front was that good. I still have to pick a book to movie novel. Should be easy but I suspect it won't. 😁

Okay. It dragged a bit. It's a fairytale and a good escapism from the reality of the USA. I had a feel that I had read the fanfic all while reading it. Not a bad feeling, just a really big urge to track down the Merlin AU fic it reminded me of. Also a good thing because that fic was wonderful. #booked2019 #fall #politicalintrigue

I read the translated edition in French published by La Pastèque.
The illustrations are amazing. A pinch of weird, a pinch of drama, a pinch of suspense all mashed up to make the reader seek out the details of the background, the expressions of the characters. The story of Mary Shelley's life and how she wrote Frankenstein and launching science-fiction lit into the world is well done.

Third in his Rivers of London series. I liked it a little less than the first two. I don't know if it's because the plot was all over the place with no real villain or if the pace was off. It just felt like it was slightly off course for a Peter Grant novel.
Second time around I liked it more. Insights of the next books makes it better. Also, i enjoyed the architecture bits so much this time. #booked2019 #POCparanormal #fall

Mehso-so

I enjoyed the world building, I didn‘t mind the slow pace of the plot. I liked the way the characters were slowly drawn and made the reader care. I cared until the author pulled a Joss Whedon right at the end. That is passé and lazy writing in my book. This is taking the easy way to make the hero, why is it always the hero, feel something. That left a bitter taste in my mouth. I probably will not read the next book.

A nice story. Nice in a good way. Nothing groundbreaking but it's a fun, quick read. I liked the frienship and “quest” story. I felt the ending was a bit awkward and forced in a “it has to end like that” because it's what's expected. 🙁

Powerful, sad, at times lyrical. The life and death of young men on the German front shows us the dissociation needed to live, survive, die. I didn‘t find it glorified war, more rationalized how the men who survive day after day in cruel, insane conditions become a pack, surviving on instinct; how young men who have known nothing else find themselves adrift afterwards.

Elegance of the Hedgehog | Muriel Barbery
post image
Pickpick

This is the kind of novel that you either love or find completely irritating. I loved it. I loved the whole class portrait of the rich French upper class. Renée is a "concierge" for this upper class building with 6 or 8 appartments. She hides her culture, her intelligence, her thirst for knowledge behind her door, her television. She gives the tennants what they want, what they need to see in order for their lives to go on.

writerlibrarian Paloma is the 12 years old girl that is too intelligent, too knowing for her own good and plans to end it all on her 13th birthday because she doesn't find anything worth living for. Both Renée's and Paloma's lives are on a collision course and what happens when a charming Japanese man becomes a tennant is both wonderful and heart breaking. (edited) 2mo
